Luge Death and 2010 Vancouver Olympics Opening Ceremony

Luge death and 2010 Vancouver Olympics Opening ceremony.  The Luge death that has taken the opening ceremony of the 2010 winter Olympics and turned it in to a time of mourning.  The luge death was Nodar Kumaritashvili, a 21 year old Olympic hopeful.

Kumaritashvili crashed while completing a qualifying round during training. Because of the luge death and fatal crash, training for the event has been suspended indefinitely.

The luge death is the third during Olympic training.  The other two happened during the sport’s inaugural year – 1964.  Many are blaming the track for the young luger’s death.  However, the investigation is not complete and there has been no official word about why he died.

No one has ever died during the actual Olympic competition.  Luge fans are holding their breaths to see if there will be a competition this year.  However, everyone should remember that if there isn’t a competition, it is only to keep the athletes safe and sound.

The Olympic opening ceremonies are underway as we speak.  The “We are the World” video will debut, and there are rumors of various performances by Canadian super stars such as Nelly Fertado.

Here are some links related to the luge death:

      This is extremely sad.. what a horrific start to such a joyous event. What a devastating blow not only to his family but to his dream of being in the Oylmpics… there is just something that isn’t right about how this happened.

    4. DREA says:

      Man….that is really sad, and to think he told his dad he was afraid of dong it to…I thought that was like a sign or something. Always go with your first instinct or something like this will happen.

    6. brandon says:

      Oh I forgot who would just do that for a passion, I know I would MAYBE do it once just for fun. I really wonder who designed that track, they should at least make some padding for the dang poles, I mean really come on!! That just sucks he was in his young twenty’s I (think). doing something that he loved and here he ends up dead. they should of made shure it was safe (before ANYONE) went. right? if any one else is reading this please tell me that i am right.

      • jackie says:

        i agree with you. Someone already died, if they dont want another person to die then they should just try it with a freaken maniken atleast it wont be dead it would still be alive and hurt but not dead like Nodar. He is a true canadian :)

    9. brandon says:

      hey jessica, would you agree with me in the one that was submited at 4:57?

    10. jackie says:

      that is just sad i saw the video 5 times and its not safe to do what the kid did its very dangerous. my blessings go to the family. He was just 21 yrs old come on. I heard that he even said he was scared but he did it any way. i call him a hero. Why? because he deserves to be called a hero, what he did out there was amazing and shocking.

    11. brandon says:

      thank you jackie, finally someone agree’s with me in the one comment that was submited at 4:57. but he died doing one of his passion’s and i now know that he was scared of doing it but here he does it anyway. that was sad and dumb all at the same time:-(

    12. brandon says:

      the luge death is…. some canadian who was going 93 miles per hour, he came around a turn sliped, fell off his luge and hit a pole, causing him to die instantly, that is what the luge death is in the winter olympics/vancouver/2010 all my blessings go to him his family, and the best of luck to the rest of the luger’s………….. play ball!!!!!! p.s. great opening of the olympics that was a great light, and camera show, my favorite part was when they made it look that there was killer whales. once again play ball!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    13. Sarahh says:

    14. Jackie says:

      i feel terribly bad about what had happened to the man from georgia.. i just am praying for his family and the people close to him, and for his enemeys. i am 12 and i must say i am speaking up for all the children who have no care that sombody died, so all i have to say is, it was the fault of no body, and nobody is to blame, so life may be short, but we are all called back to our home with god somday and he just decisided that he wanted him now.

If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
